Big Data Week in Toronto 2014


Last year Big Data Week came to Toronto, connecting a community of big data geeks through a series of meet-ups, networking events and an exciting Hack-a-thon. Together, we brought out over 500 attendees and 30 start-ups across the GTA and had a rockin’ good time talking about everything ‘data’.

This year, we promise it’ll be EVEN BIGGER, with more meet-ups, more start-ups and more fun with data.
